Hi, my Inspiron 1501 stays on when I close the lid and goes into standby only once I re-open the lid. So unless I remember to close-open-close the lid after each use, it goes into standby as soon as I open it up to use it.
Anyone know a way to fix whatever setting is off? I'd like it to go into standby when I close it, if possible.

In Windows XP, Open Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, set Sleep and Hibernate to no/never, set what to do when lid is closed. Use this procedure: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-xp/help/setup/configure-power-management It's a good idea to Shut down at Start Menu and unplug when not in use to prevent damage due to power surges, and IF the battery malfunctions, prevent a fire hazzard.
Your laptop either goes to hibernate or sleep mode when you close the lid. Then, when you open the lid up, the screen is still off because your pc already hanged/froze and could not wake up at all (usual problem in vista). Off course, hard shutdown would fix it. But actual fix is under power options on your control panel. Check your current scheme and edit it. There are options there that you can select to "do nothing when closing the lid"
Let me help you regarding this, As your notebook is not having low room to handel the standby applications, i suggest you to change the power options in the control pannel. There you find POWER OPTIONS icon click on it and go to advance tab, there u find the option called WHEN YOU CLOSE THE LID, put it to DO NOTHING. So that nothing happens when you close the lid. I hope this helps you. BYE
It sounds like your “Suspend Switch” is acting up. The Inspiron 1501 uses a mechanical switch to detect if the lid of the system is open or closed. A camber is built into the hinge of the system that activates the suspend switch plunger as the LCD is lowered to the closed position. If the switch is broken or nonfunctional, then it can be replaced separately. It is located under the hinge cover next to the right hinge on the system.
